2020 Season Kick-Off!
Jan 14, 2020
Happy New Year Everyone!
Well the 2020 Season is in full swing and we start with almost a full roster. We do still have a couple seats open, so feel free to register if you're feeling lucky and you like to have fun! :)
For the first time ever we kicked off the season with an Open Gaming night, which was a fun and more relaxing way to start things off. The first focus game of the year (as seeded by Richard F) and voted on by our members is London (2nd Edition)
Anyway, best of luck to all of our members on the roster this year - I have a feeling this will be the best season yet!

2019 was a challenging year for the board gaming industry, brick & mortar gaming stores, and even our league as this is the first season in almost 10 years that we haven't been able to keep a 100% full roster. Regardless, we still had a really fun year with lots of member support and strong attendance numbers. As always, huge thanks to our primary (gold) sponsor: Mission: Fun & Games for all the support!
2019 Century: Spice Road DOMINATION Tournament Results
Nov 09, 2019
For the second year in a row we managed to get poor weather and road conditions on our Domination Tournament night. This year we had 18 players enter the EBGL's 2019 Century Spice Road "Domination" (single elimination) tournament on November 8th and, as always, a couple winners emerged.
Congrats to 2018 League Champion Patrick C for winning first place and former League Champion Michael F for winning second place after just 3 rounds.
Both Patrick and Michael will earn some nice gift certificates to Mission: Fun & Games at the upcoming awards night. As always, thanks to all of our members who braved the weather, brought copies of the game, and ensured we had lots of snacks just in case we were stranded.
